How to Catch a Thief
Using a Security Trail Camera to Catch Vandals
Trespassers, burglars and vandals seem to be multiplying at an unbelievable rate. Luckily, catching a criminal has never been easier with the help of trail cameras for security surveillance.
3 Steps to Catch a Thief
If you have a trespasser problem, the easiest fix is to use No Flash Infrared Trail Cameras.
With no flash security cameras, the night infrared led's do not glow red and therefore, the trespasser won't see a visible flash at night.
Also, never mount a game camera for security within easy line of sight if you know you have trespassers on your property. Consider mounting the camera high on a tree or camouflage the camera in a way that it is not easily seen.
For thieves or vandals in a residential, urban or commercial environment; you will need to think outside the box.
Mounting the camera from high on a roof, telephone pole or even something like a bird feeder will keep the camera from being readily spotted.
If you want the camera to take a picture and immediately send that picture to your cell phone or email, then you need a cellular trail camera or cell phone camera.
Unfortunately, there is not a viable wifi game camera or any that possess "game camera wifi." However, there are some excellent cellular security cameras. What is the difference? A wifi trail camera would produce it's own wireless network or would work on wifi networks already available. Cellular cameras work on Verizon & AT&T cellular networks.

3. Security Camera Setup
After testing the camera at home, place the camera in your already selected setup. Always make sure you have the time stamp option turned to "on." This will let you know exactly when the criminal was there.
Photos from a trail camera can be used as evidence in a criminal investigation.
